BEETLE­JUICE

OUT 26 OC­TO­BER

Total Film - - Big Screen - Kevin Har­ley

Pre-CGI, pre-Johnny Depp: with­out his later crutches, Tim Bur­ton’s ri­otous 1988 goth-com ages well. Canny twists on home-in­va­sion ba­sics see newly deads Geena Davis and Alec Bald­win sum­mon­ing bio-ex­or­cist Betel­geuse (Michael Keaton) to rid their home of yup­pies. Keaton’s mad­cap in­cur­sions are un­leashed ju­di­ciously, the vi­su­als crackle and Wi­nona Ry­der makes win­ning work of Ly­dia.
